Colour

A unique design of passive protection, designed to ‘cam’ into breaks and pockets with no moving parts. Affixed to a durable steel wire, Abalaks have a narrow V-shaped head and come in a variety of sizes, ideal for protecting horizontal cracks and small pockets, particularly quarry shot-holes, where the traditional cam does not fit.

Abalaks can be placed like a typical nut, however come into their own when used as a passive camming device. The Abalak set comes in anodised and non-anodised options and are colour coded on their stem for easy recognition of size.

  • Large Range of Sizes - Compatible for use in a wide variety of situations

Nifty kit

I wanted to try these out as a wired alternative to tricams. I've used them twice now, in horizontal breaks on gritstone. They are quicker to place than tricams, so good for a leader. My second found them slightly harder to remove, but only marginally. Great service from Sgùrr.

Esoteric but very useful

It's too cold for trad right now but I've had a play with the Abalaks at the beach and they seem to work rather well in places where no other gear will work. Looking forward to trying them once temperatures get warm enough to rock climb again.

Good kit

Excellent passive cams, proved very good in winter climbs, seem to work where normal nuts and cams don’t. Arrived quickly with and nice personal note from the company owners.
